    SA WW2 Operating Rod Catches

    Were in the white op Rod Catches the only ones used by Springfield from 1941 - end of the war? Or did they use any of the darker coloured ones? I have a Feb 45 with an in the white Catch on it and was wondering if there's any other ones which maybe accurate?

    Many thanks

    I have 2 WWII M1 rifles in my measley collection. One is a SA 9-42, the other is a SA 5-45. Both have park'ed catches but the pin in the '42 is in the white. I truly believe the 9-42 is all original (minus a couple of parts I replaced). The 5-45 is my DCM rifle and it went thru at least one rebuild.
